Public meetings for Potomac Yards

By Luke Rosiak

Metro, the Federal Transit Administration, the National Park Service and Alexandria will hold two meetings to inform residents about the proposed Blue/Yellow Line infill project.

The public is invited to learn about the Environmental Impact Statement process; ask questions; and comment on the purpose and need for the project, alternatives considered, issues to be studied and the process.

The meetings are Thursday, February 10, 2011 from 4:30 - 6 p.m. and from 6:30 - 8 p.m. at Cora Kelly Recreation Center, 25 West Reed Avenue in Alexandria.

Though many details about the Metro stop have yet to be decided, dense, mixed-use development is anticipated around it, and a special tax district would help finance it.
